Enumerating website

Hack the box(HTB) devel writeup

viewing the image i got this.

Getting initial foothold

Which i aslo saw at the ftp.

Hack the box(HTB) devel writeup

It meas that www and ftp both are in same directory.

nmap scan showed that the web server is Microsoft IIS version 7.5. IIS web server generally either executes ASP or ASPX (ASP.NET). Since the version is 7.5, further googling tells us that it likely supports ASPX.

Hence making a .aspx payload for that i will use msfvemon.

Making payload

uploading payload

put file_name

Privilege escalation

I searched for user.txt but didn’t get so now it’s time for privilage escalation.

Hack the box(HTB) devel writeup

I tried first one but it didn’t worked but this one worked (exploit/windows/local/ms10_015_kitrap0d).

And it worked

Getting user and root flag

And since we are root so we can get both the flags.
